12187. (photo) Absecon Lighthouse IOV lamp, Atlantic City, NJ c.1900. Rare image taken by a lighthouse visitor shows the 55mm IOV lamp inside the large 1st Order Fresnel lens. A most unusual view as it was extremely difficult to take interior photographs at the time. Image includes tank, burner and mantle as well as segments of the lens and the curtain (pulled back) from inside the lens ! Photo measures 2 ½” x 3 ½” and is mounted to portion of album page. A bit light but still some detail. (VG). $45.
